Research Symposium - Turning Youth Development Into Evidence
This event aims to support growth and build capacity in the youth development sector as the need to evidence outcomes becomes increasingly important and more practitioners think about how to commence collection, or best utilise their data. The morning consists of short presentations with examples of evidence based practice and evaluation experience. These presentations cover different research methodology in a real life context, which could be of particular value to social science students, a short synopsis of these discussions is below. The afternoon is an interactive discussion focussing on increasing the use and quality of evaluation evidence in the youth development field where everyone\\\'s input is welcome regardless of their background, or experience. Tickets are $22 and available on EventbritePurchase Tickets
